I don’t know, I’m asking. We all got the news that PowerShell had RTM’d which saw me jump and kick my heals together. For those of you who know me, you know what a site that would have been.
PowerShell is a significant technology for me because it is my preferred mechanism for bashing together quick scripts to do things that I might normally have done in Visual Studio 205 as a C# program. A good example is walking the Windows Vista RSS feed store to do things like remove import artefacts.
Unfortunately there is no build that officially works with Windows Vista RTM now until sometime next year (that is the rumour anyway). The problem is that people like me have come to rely on PowerShell for automation tasks and I’ve even got software that I would like to integrate with it, but still debug it on Windows Vista.
My next step is seeing if I can somehow force the installer to work.
I should be able to get this to work since PowerShell used to run on Windows Vista when it was part of the Windows SDK.
One of my concerns about the disconnect between the release dates is that the binaries might get some revisions to better work with Vista and then we could have two versions of PowerShell out there to contend with. Hopefully not – I will need to do some investigation.
